Hi, My name is Ian Paterson and I would like to introduce myself.
I have be doing family research since the early 1990's. I have mainly concentrated on the Paterson side of things with the odd delve into other names. I have basically exhausted my line, and as I have recently retired it is time to carry out the impossible!!
My cousin bless her cotton socks gave me my maternal grandmothers photograph album about 10 years ago, its old and worn with 65 photographs in it. I recognise two individuals which leaves around 63 to go, hence joining the Society.
My grandmother was Elizabeth Little (1880-1967) and was born in Henry Street, Langholm, and she married David Paterson (1879-1917) in 1901.
Looking into her lines she had five sisters and two brothers.
Now the crux is quite a few of the photographs are from Carlisle, and some from Tyneside. I am hoping that some one is researching the Little's and can link there research to my photo's A long shot I know.
Quite happy to share my information also, I have an Ancestry tree as well.
Cheers, Ian P
